I’m a 50 yo high school teacher who was diagnosed with ADD 15 years ago. I think the school idea would be awesome for you! The self-advocacy would be empowering for you, and the rewards of possibly helping your peers would be immeasurable (leadership opportunities, recognition from faculty, creating better awareness among peers, etc.). Also, you may find a faculty member like me who would jump at the privilege of moderating a group like that. And you’re right – there needs to be more places where kids can go to share their experiences, feelings, suggestions, etc. See if that works – I’m pulling for you!
